Hello everyone, support with a comment who is in favor of having the languages ​​of all states
Why is there no Slavic language in the game Czech, Polish, Slovak, Slovenian, Ukrainian, Serbian, Croatian, Bulgarian and many others
russian language is not Slavic most Slavs don't understand it but for some reason it is in the game in my opinion the game should have all the languages ​​of the world, why can someone freely play and use their own language, and someone should consume another language that is completely unfamiliar to them, this is not fair on the part of the developers who always write about honesty in the game, I want to use my language

    They talked about this when they removed a language previously (I think it was Arabic but not 100% positive now). Beyond the cost to translate it they also said it takes more time and money because they have to redesign parts of the interface/screen sometimes because different languages have different lengths for words and some may be longer than English and not fit correctly and other issues like that that we don't really think about most of the time. They said they didn't have enough players using certain languages (spending enough I assume) to be able to justify the cost and extra time it would take each time they release new content or create new parts of the game with different interfaces.

    It costs money to translate.

    in your opinion, from all the countries I mentioned, people don't buy anything with money, people spend the same in the store as everyone else, but they don't use their native language, they use a translator to understand everything and lose a lot of content, maybe that's why the game is not so popular in the world because there are not all languages, how to play the game, if I don't understand anything, here you need to read a lot about the abilities of the heroes and therefore there should be an interface in all languages, the developers make enough money in my opinion to add all languages ​​for the convenience of users, this is my personal opinion
    The text is written through a translator, so maybe not everything is written correctly, try to choose a language you don't understand and play the game for a month, then your opinion will change, it's actually very difficult

    English; which has no bearing on the matter at hand.

    I am not minimizing your issue/request at all and absolutely recognize it must be a struggle to play in a non-native language. I am frustrated with the imprecision and inconsistencies in ability/node descriptions in English so I can only imagine how much worse it is for you when filtered through translation or just not being your native language.

    I was just providing you with information related to what you posted based on what Kabam said in the previous example I mentioned.

    It also isn't a matter of anyone saying people who speak certain languages are not spending any money at all, it is an issue of it not being enough to offset the cost in money and time to do all the different translations. Unfortunately they feel that it will cost them more than it is worth and that enough people will be able to make do with the languages they do support.

    an interesting fact everyone writes about the fact that few people play from Ukraine and Poland, I looked at the population of the countries whose language is in the game Norway 5 million people, the Netherlands 17 million people for some reason their languages ​​are in the game Poland's population is 37 million Ukraine's population is 43 million what do you think in which country are there more people who could play this game, whatever their native language is here, for example, I think that there should be at least Ukrainian and Polish languages, because the population of these countries is close to others whose languages ​​are 35 and 38 countries in the world in terms of population and if you add Poles and Ukrainians living in other countries, it will be about 60 million Poles and about 63 million Ukrainians
    I don't want to offend anyone, but it's true

    Translation costs money.

    Translation also requires a Translator working in Kabam or a third party company Kabam hires.

    The translator needs to be fluent in the language they are translating from, into Native level English.

    In my years working in game localisation and translation, I’ve never worked with the majority of Slavic speaking natives. The demand from games companies for those Slavic translators is low, therefore the amount of Slavic translators who also work in games is also low.

    If the return of investment is low, then it’s not a wise decision to make. It’s really that simple.

    The bottom line is, they provide the game in as many languages as are financially and reasonably possible. Unfortunately, it's not possible to provide it in every language of the world. I'm sure they would like to have it translated for as many people as possible, but it's not always feasible. There are also limitations to the translations they make. They do the best they can with the resources at their disposal.

    that's why I'm writing about this to all the developers whose games I play to add my native language, I would be very interested no matter how in some cool video game the was not English or French language, for example in series of games Metro 2033,S.T.A.L.K.E.R, and many others created by Ukrainians
    It is difficult to argue with you, you do not understand how it is when your language is not there, I think that Kabam has enough money to make Ukrainian and Polish localizations you live in another world understand

    My heart goes out to the Ukraine and the current situation, and by no means am I trying to be insensitive, but the existence of some languages and not others in the game is not a political statement.

    Ok, then tell me how to report to the developers so that they block it, even though the chat is in Russian, you don’t know what they write there, I may not read it, but children and other people sometimes answer them, it’s terrible what the Russians write, I wrote many times to close the chat without a clear answer from the developers I know where to write more thanks
